exhaustive reports one by the f.b.i. and one by the secret service that were really quite extraordinary and the secret service looked at all the shool scootings for a 26-year period and found first finding a little frustrating. one of those main findings was that there is no single profile of these shooters. and that the imaginary idea most of us have is these guys are generally loners, outcasts, that sort of thing. that's nonsense. about a third of the people are loners. they come from all different types. they're all different. so there's no single parallel between each of these incidents. and that seems a little disheartening at first but when you look a little deeper it gets much better. to my surprise, it turns out that there are only three types of killers in almost all situations. there's this rare exception to that. but for the most part if we understand three types of killers, we really understand what's going on with all these guys. but we can't try to lump them altogether they don't make sense because they're completely different. the three types are the sadistic psycho path

have been put forward to this? one of the things that has not been discussed is how quickly or the fbi -- i was troubled by how long it took the fbi to get to the scene, and we need to make sure that we are falling back to where we were before september 11 where things get stovepipe within agencies information is not being communicated, and when agencies are not working together. senator mccain pointed out an example, that there were eyewitnesses that it took days for us to get information, about what those by witnesses had seen, which would have cleared up a misrepresentation that was made about the reaction to the video from day one. i think those questions have to be answered to make sure that we prevent future attacks like this. >> there will be as we know nominations coming forward for a secretary of defense, a new director of the cia. these questions will be part of that process. they will be part of our obligation as our role of advice and consent. questions? >> you talked about the failure of leadership the report highlights. do you think people above should be held accountable
